Default Mod squad Corvette

I´m looking for pics of a 1968 Corvette that was used in a series called "The mod squad", I think.
Do you remember that car/series ?

Chrysler was the official vehicle sponsor for the show and there were some really neat one-offs used - like the 1972 Challenger convertible (Yes 1972, a year after Chrysler stopped making convertibles). They also supplied the one and only 1972 Barracuda ragtop for the Brady Bunch - remember the episode where Bobby shoves the umbrella throught the convertible top at the drive-in when Greg had to drag him along on his date? That was the '72 blue Barracuda ragtop.

Anyway, I dont recall any Corvettes used on the show. I used to watch it as a kid just to see the Mopars. (My grandfather was an exec at ABC at the time and used to get us all kinds of promotional items from all the shows. We still have a lot of it somewhere in the family archives )

The above car is from the Mod Squad. The one below is claimed to be the Brady Bunch 'Cuda, a 71.

Thank´s for the pics and info !
I´m asking because I met a guy a couple of days ago who said he had bought the 1968 Corvette used in a series called "Mod Squad". The car had been in storage for thirty years or so, and was painted in a pattern similar to the Chrysler Mod-tops. It was otherwise an all original L-79 Corvette, matching numbers.

Could it have been used in some other series in the seventies, so they just mixed it up ?

The Challengr is correct but this blue 71???

The one used in the Brady Bunch was a B5 blue, flat hooded 318 or 6 cyl Barracuda with a 72 grill and more interestingly, the 72 tail section with the four round tail lights. Unless the guy that owns the pictured car above cut the 72 tail panel out and then cloned it into a 71 Cuda by adding the 71 gilled fenders, shaker hood and nose, I think he's telling a fictional story. Is he claiming it was a 426 hemi too? Because Mike Brady was not THAT cool!

(That actually looks like a photo one of the two, blue, four-speed hemicuda ragtops built.)

Damn Steve, you're a good detective, or mind reader?

from the IMBD site;

The Bradys all drove Chrysler Corporation vehicles (until the final season). Mike Brady drove a 1968 blue Dodge Polara convertible in the pilot; a 1969 Plymouth Fury III convertible also blue; second season a 1970 Plymouth Fury III convertible in blue; a 1970 blue Plymouth Barracuda convertible in year three; <u> a 1972 Plymouth Barracuda convertible in year four (actually, it was the 1970 Barracuda convertible modified with a 1972 rear tail light panel and front end grill. Plymouth dropped the Barracuda convertible in 1971. ) </u> ; also there was a 1972 blue Chevrolet Impala convertible; a red 1973 Chevrolet Caprice convertible; and a bronze 1974 Chevrolet Caprice convertible in year five. The "Bradys" 1974 bronze Caprice was also used in an episode of The Odd Couple in 1975. Carol, on the other hand, drove only two vehicles: a gold 1969 Plymouth Satellite wagon (first season); a gold 1970 Plymouth Satellite wagon; and a gold 1971 Plymouth Satellite wagon (which took the "bunch" on their infamous Grand Canyon trip). Also a gold 1973 Plymouth Satellite wagon (with the big bumper guards) in the last season. The vehicles were loaned to Paramount by the Chrysler Corporation and The Chevrolet motor Division for filming. Incidentally, the 1969 Plymouth Fury III convertible that "Mike Brady" drove was recently restored to showroom condition.

Here is the site with the "Brady Cuda" photo.
